shoot Tom...
the quads have elec start and 4 wheels and are just a pleasure to ride....
And then you come along with us and one of us will haul your quad(s) for you. We will take Clark's quad out for him also, he also has crossed over to The Comfort Zone.
Clark put in his due diligence over the years, so its the least we can do.

Tom,
You are in the wholesale tire biz??
I have just heard that those guys who are running 4 WIDE BFG's in the back are putting too much additional stress on the axle ends. I don't know how closely they engineer those axles and the load they carry, but it kinda makes sense to me.

Thats why I stay with my stock tires. They do the job, don't need any wider ones. When you drive a dually you got everything you need, especially if you have a power add'er. Just don't stomp the throttle or you'll dig a hole in the pavement with those duals.

Mikey, we gotta watch the term "tom". Sometimes not sure who U talking to.

Seems logical. Moving the wheel out too far would increase the stress on the axle bearings, just like the deep wheels that move the tire out from under the fenders.

that was it!!
now i rememeber
i heard it could stress the BEARING!!

and oh,.... Tom (OK) i see your point,
we got us a couple Toms.
maybe 'Tom' and "Tom and P'?
or Tom1 and ...??
except that Tom (OK), i've taken to calling you Tommy lately, but maybe that isn't your preference either,
but let me explain something to ALL of you guys,
ANY company that has more then 10 employees, has at least two MIKES, and we have 35 employees, so try tackling that one sometime.!!!

"Mike, call on Line 2" and four us us dash for the phone at work ....

Hey, no sweat Mike. Just call me Tommy or whatever, I'll figure it out. My Grandma used to call me that.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">

Tom, When you get older, you get a Jeep so it don't hurt as much. I gave up my 2 wheel stuff when it started riding me more than I was riding it. Figured I needed something more relaxed. Get something and plan on Moab for next spring! </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Oh Tom: You're showin' your age there buddy! (But oooooooo- how right you are!!!)

I left my XR250 after all the carnage I've seen in the last few years...have a very good friend that raced District 37 (desert-racing) for 30 years, won the Baja 500 in 1999(?), the 1000 the next year after, and the 2000- all in the sportsman class, then practicing for the 24 Hour @ Glen Helen, dumped it, and has been a quadrepledgic since. Best rider I've ever seen, but it finally caught up to him...

so....I saw the handwriting, and decided to get my sandrail, and just recently the Jeep...can't say that I miss 2-wheelers because between the two OHV's, I have more fun than all of my 2 wheeler riding forever.

Just my $0.02 worth!

And Tom & Patty....yes!!! Everything has been procured and pics all over the place here...TH & TV...and NO....did not win the lottery (can't if ya don't play it!)...

Sean

Well, gottem on! Took two balance jobs to get them right. I think they do that so you'll have more time to spend in the store shopping while they get it right.

Really don't see any difference in the ride, maybe a little better right now since they are new. You can tell these tires are a little shorter, maybe it'll let me tow a little slower and still stay in the power band. I figure about two mph off on the speedo now, along with three from the factory, that makes it right at 5 fast right now. Mileage oughta be better!
